Wondering if students may set up checkers on the board at the start of the game.
Picture attached.
Or are the referees responsible for setting up the game pieces?

Section 2.2 "Match Procedures" in the rules can answer a lot of these questions for you. As per 2.2, students are not allowed to touch the game pieces, the referees or field crew designated to reset the fields will reset the field prior to the start of the match - the students are tasked with ensuring the setup is correct, and if not then they are to notify the referee IMMEDIATELY if not sooner.

Your picture is interesting, as well as incorrect, for a starting configuration. I can tell you played the game last year, and possibly did not read section 4.2.6 closely enough.
Section 4.2.6 wrote:
Each pair of ... checkers should be placed in the center of its own Atom Collector Mark

Note that the emphasis on the word "center" is mine, and is not that way in the rules, but nevertheless the intent is the same. The referees MUST attempt to put the checkers in the center of the mark - of course it's impossible to guarantee the checkers are in the exact center, but should be within a "reasonable distance" of the actual center. Your image would be unacceptable for a starting configuration.
