Roaming profile folder permissions

I have a Server 2008 R2 server running active directory. I am having profile folder issues. The folders are setup as follows:

Data
    student
       2012
       2013
       2014
       2015
       folder_redirect
            2012
            2013
            2014
            2015

Depending on what year they graduate the student profile folders are in either 2012,2013,2014 or 2015. Their redirect_folder should be in folder_redirect\2012, 2013, 2014 or 2015. If I let the server create the profile folders, I do not have access to their files. I must have access to their files. Can someone please tell me the file permissions for each folder/layer? Do I have to remove any files from the client computer??

It depends on what your level of access is, are you a domain admin?  Make sure the root folder share is set to only Everyone(Full) and handle the subfolders with NTFS permissions.  But bottom line is your account or a group account should be in the root shared folder and inherited throught the subfolder structure with the appropriate permissions.  The next time you add an account with a profile it will give them permission to the folder and inherit your user/group permission.
   Not sure why you would need to delete any files on the client.  Sometimes we run into profile issues where we need to delete a corrupted profile on the server or workstation to have it re-sync one way or the other.  The only issue might be is if you need to reorganize or move any of the profile to another directory.  You may need to coordinate a reboot on the workstations, because they will not get the updated profile path location until a reboot.  Hope this helps.

What is going to happen if and when the student signs into the profile from the student computer if:
there are student files on the computer and not the server profile?
there are student files on the computer and older files on the server profile?
there are student files on the computer and newer files on the server profile?
