I think you will find that Audible does not have school accounts. If you
read their terms of service they specifically state that accounts are for
personal use. However, if you call them and ask if you can use it at school
some of their support personnel will tell you that you can create an
account and then give a student the username and password. If you try to
nail them down to state that it is acceptable use to use an Audible account
for school they will tell you that they only have personal accounts.

Have you looked at eRead Illinois? Very reasonably priced and you get both
eBooks and audio books.
