Advanced Placement tests are exams offered in the U.S. by the College Board that give high school students the opportunity to earn college credit. This year, the exams are being offered online because of the coronavirus pandemic. Teachers and a student from Rogers Public Schools share what it's been like preparing virtually for the time.

As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, Bentonville School District will open its virtual learning program to all students come August when schools are expecting to resume in-person instruction. The district already offered virtual learning to students grades five through 12 for a couple of years, but it will expand the program to students in grades K through four.

To make sure their graduating seniors know they're appreciated, the Springdale School District will share special video tributes to them. Business owners, community members and elected officials share their thoughts for each of the district's high school gradutating classes.
