We provide education and support for professional development, instructional technology, in-service, library media, and instructional television to all Santa Rosa sites and educators.

VISION: Educator Professional Development supports equity and excellence in teaching and learning to ensure the success of each SRC student.

MISSION: The Office of Professional Learning is committed to empowering educators via relevant learning experiences through leadership development, talent development, and professional support.  The foundation of professional learning encompasses strengthening pedagogical content knowledge through comprehensive, research-based, job-embedded learning experiences whereby all students can effectively attain or exceed the knowledge and skills outlined in the Florida B.E.S.T. standards essential for the future success of students in the global society.

Supporting Educators Since 1995

The Office of Professional Learning (OPL), in the Dillon Admin Center, is the new name for the PDC (Professional Development Center). Since we are no longer in our own separate center, we made the name change to better describe our department and make a better fit for ourselves in the new Dillon Admin Center.

Making an Impact Across the District

With hundreds of total hours of teacher and staff training, several popular professional learning events, and on-demand instructional resource support provided to all administrators, teachers, and educational support, the OPL serves as a major positive force for learning in the Santa Rosa County School District.
