Cisco 3850 - Direct Connect APs

Can you non-directly connect APs to a 3850. For example if you had multiple offices within one branch site and your 3850 MC was in the server rack and had 2960s in the other offices. Could you connect your APs to the 2960 switch and have them joined to the 3850 MC?

I've read that APs need to be directly connected to the 3850 however it supports flexconnect?

Would appreciate if anyone could shed some light.

Thanks,

3850 won't support flexconnect. Also you have to directly connect AP to 3850 (not via transient switches like 2960).
