[ap-stat] Grad School Question

I live close to Reno, Nevada, with the only university close by being UNR.
I am interested in doing a Master's in Statistics program to deepen my
knowledge of Stats for my AP Stats class, but UNR does not offer Stats
classes on weekends, nights, or late afternoons such that I could take
classes and still teach at the high school I'm at.

Because of that I have been considering a completely online program, and I
have found such programs at the University of Washington, Penn State, and
Texas A&M.

Questions - (1) are there other online Statistics programs you know of that
I should consider?; (2) what in your mind are the hallmarks of a "good"
online Masters in Stats program, and are any programs I've mentioned
"good"?; and (3) what experience have you had with online Stats programs,
either good or bad?

Another question - I have found scholarships and grants for either teachers
studying teaching, or statisticians studying statistics, but I have not
found anything for teachers studying statistics (for the sake of teaching
it), at least not in the dollar amount that would help me afford such a
Masters program. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you for your ideas and suggestions!
