In Turf Management, are your students allowed to work with mowers and power tools?

My school wants to start a program for students to take care of athletic fields.  Is this more of a pain for the teacher, rather than a benefit for students?  I don't want this to turn into me doing the work maintenance does not want to do, and it taking so much time the students do not learn anything except how to mow a football field.  What liability issues does using power mowers and tools pose?
