We have a VCR/DVD writer combo unit that we use for this, never had problems.
VCR to DVD Recorder is the easiest way. Remember that owning the vcr doesn't automatically licence you to make a dvd.
Unfortunatley, I don't think by-passing copy protection on material that might not be licensed to be copied is something that you should get into at a school. :(
Bit like them asking you to installing an extra copy of office without a licence :(
If you (personally) want to be responsible. Then yes, we used a DVD->VCR to convert licensed videos to streaming format for your school (easier to take from dvd than from VHS - backup also)
However to "copy" to dvd for teachers? I wouldn't do it. We let them know about copyright and all and said we couldn'd do it.
If you get the teacher to check with the publishing company then write a note to say they have checked (keep for later) then even if they dont check but sign - they will be responsible for the copying.
