Did you have to ask for permission to take replace the tiles?
Yes, I discussed the project with my principal first. She suggested that I store the old tiles in case there was an issue later. The tiles are so affordable, that I will probably purchase new replacements when I leave the room I currently teach in.
You could even have the students purchase their own tiles from a local home improvement store. It would probably only cost them around 4 or 5 dollars. I would suggest setting it up with the store (Home Depot or Lowes) to make sure the students all buy the same type of tiles if you decide to go with this option.
