    No GPS?

    There's no GPS for tracking the iPhone? Nor iPads (I don't know anything about iPads)? I would think a public school especially would have GPS enabled on iPads (if that's possible). I assume the iPhone is a personal item, non-school related, however. Unless the person knew what they were doing with the phone (usually isn't likely), they should definitely have some sort of track on the phone.

    oops. either way, BPS or not, a school is not going to pay $30/month per iPad for cellular plans (on top of the increased initial cost of the 4G versus wifi only model)

    I don't know how it works on

    I don't know how it works on an iPad, but my iPhone has a free feature that will track the phone on iCloud. If that's enabled, something tells me that the iPhone and iPads won't be too far from each other.
