Where have you saved the files? Do the Student accounts have permission to read or read and write to the folder containing the files? Who has permission to read/write the files themselves?
To check (and change) permissions on files of which you are the owner, locate the file(s) in the Finder, Select one, the press command-I (eye, not ell) to Get Info.
In the ownership and permissions section, you can see the permissions assigned to you, to a specific group, and ot 'everyone'. You may need to change permissions for the group (if the student accounts have been defined as a group), or for 'everyone'.
If all the files are in a single folder, you can change permissions for all by changing permissions for the folder, then applying the change to all enclosed files.

Permissions were already read & write for everyone. I deleted plists in preferences, ran disk utility, deleted iWork'09 and reinstalled in. Then I updated the computer to 10.6.8. Don't know which action specifically fixed the problem, but everything works now.
