I think you mean "roaming profiles".

You could mount all of the desktops' /home file systems from the LTSP
server.  That way students could log into their accounts on the fat or
thin clients, and get the same desktop profiles.

If that causes too much of a load on the LTSP server, set up a separate
NFS box.  Mount /home from the NFS box on the LTSP server and fat
clients.  Effect will be the same as above, minus the increased I/O load
on the LTSP server.
