Sure.  Just set up a VPN gateway on that fiber link, and have your
students VPN in with their home broadband links.  That gives them access
to the school's network as if they were actually, physically at the
school.  We do this in our district, and it's great.  I use vpnc on
GNU/Linux to connect in via my cable modem on a near-daily basis.  Works
great for securing wireless, too, BTW, if you're thinking about that.

You can even connect entire sites to your district that way if you
want.  We use that for connecting some of our satellite offices that are
located in "strip mall" shopping centers.

Do you GNU!?
