Normally, you do not need to "download" an app as "find my iphone" is built into the iOS and would just needed to be turned on from the iPad settings>icloud usually by default it you ever had icloud on.

Also, even if it is dead right now, if it is ever charged once it connects to wifi for a second it can then be tracked. You can check by signing into

Trust me, I know how you feel as I also work for a school district and found some stolen imacs with find my iphone on. They actually tried to wipe the imacs clean but during the process they connected to their wifi and BAM found the location.
