You could use a captive portal to grant students access individually
for a specific chunk of time - i.e. they get an hour or two for each

That could be tied back to a radius server for ease of administration
(I can't imagine any fun in handling a school load of student accounts
with a web gui)

Another would be a use of the poor-mans trick with the exec.php page.
You could make a page that has enough xml/html in it to handle the
ruleset modification that you want, but this shouldn't be considered

It'd require a fair amount of detail work but I suspect that it could
be pulled off.
