    We use Password Control from WiseSoft:

    Link: Password Control

    We have a Parent/Child domain but only use it on the Child [student] domain [would work on Staff account if we chose to use it that way]

    Not used the below but have seen it suggested on one other thread in relation to password reset only :

    Reset Student User Password Free Tool for Schools, Business and Education - Burconix

    Wisesoft one is good but does have options to disable etc , not sure if these can be disabled or if upon clicking on said other options they would get access denied as surely you would only delegate access rights for resetting passwords on student accounts and nothing else

    You can also make a custom mmc console to do this, you can tie it down to one or a few ou's and limit any activity apart from changing passwords.

    We use a freeware tool from netwrix called password manager (www.netwrix.com). It’s a web-based self-service tool that lets users reset forgotten passwords through a question-and-answer portal. It doesn’t cost anything to download if you have less than 50 users.
