There are several ways of doing this:
1. Central WLC if the WAN links are big (>20 Mbps);
2. Flexconnect; or
3. Mobility Express.
NOTE: For #1 will depend on how many APs per site.

Central with HA and AP’s in FlexConnect.

Take a look at this guide. There are many other guides and blogs in regards to FlexConnect

In that scenario I would run a WLC in HA and having the APs in Flexconnect. 

Another option would be look at Cisco Meraki that uses a cloud controller that way you dont need have the APs depending on a central WLC.
