A LOT of percussionists

I am currently struggling with figuring out what to do with my multitudes of “percussionists.” All of them just want to play snare drum parts however I cannot have 10+ snare drums playing at once and the other students get bored with the cymbal parts or whatever else there may be. Is there any way to keep all of the students interested in more than just the snare drum part? I am looking for any feedback possible; I only see the students once a week for 45 minutes so time is of the essence.
Does your rehearsal space have any practice rooms, specifically rooms where students could go practice rudiments on pads when not having anything to rehearse with the rest of your ensemble?
Also, often times bored percussionists have a tendency to play with very poor technique. Even if the music is relatively simple, you can challenge them to strive for perfect technique when playing cymbals, bass drum, auxiliary, etc.
