When setting up and account like this, it would be good to remove access privileges for this user to a utility such as passwd, so that users can't change the password and block everyone else out.

The administrator will still be able to change it if needed, but potentially mischievous users (such as students which were mentioned) won't be able to cause as much trouble.
