Arlington Public Schools Distance Learning Program began by offering one locally produced course in 1993. Today, we support over 30 classes, providing a combination of locally produced classes taught by master Arlington teachers and completely online courses offered by various national organizations. Virtual@APS (Distance Learning Program) supports initiatives and curricula that offer students, staff and community the opportunity to participate in courses and professional development.
