[K12OSN] Permissions Question

Mostly Mac clients. Very few Windows. Our Mac OSX clients are
connecting through Samba. Windows clients connect through Samba. OS9
clients connect with Appletalk.
I have it fixed now. Changing the group with the chgrp command (I told
you I was embarrassed about asking the question) did the trick. Just to
make sure, I added a file in cron.daily to change the group for all
student files to teachers. It should work for what I want. The issue
was not with giving teachers access to the folder. The issue was that,
when a student creates a file, that file (in his/her folder) is owned by
coojo08:coojo08 and I want it owned by coojo08:teachers. The chgrp that
I put in cron.daily will change the permission each night - meaning that
a teacher will have access to all files created yesterday or earlier.
