Hi

We have windows 2012 DC and windows 7 in our network.
Sometimes when the students forget their password, they have go to their teacher and the teacher in charge has to raise a call to the IT support to change the password which is doesn't work very well.

Is there any software which I can install on a teachers laptop , so that they have access to Active directory  and change\reset only the students passwords

Please suggest the best way of setting up this.

You do not need any additional software.  What you need to do is ensure the students accounts are in an OU of their own.  Delegate rights for the teacher(s)to reset password.  Install RSAT tool on the teacher(s) PC.  Active Directory Users and Computers can be used to reset passwords.   Refer to link below:
