The Arlington ISD Mac Bernd Professional Development Center (PDC) opened its doors in January of 2005. Since that time, the Center has come to host, on average, about 3000 professional learning sessions, staff meetings, and special events a year with our total operating days being about 280. Our 10 training rooms and 3 computer labs provide the district and the community with spaces to implement quality instruction at the highest level possible. Our flexible 400 seat banquet space allows us to host large district events but also smaller high school sports and fine arts groups for end-of-season awards. We also partner with many community groups for training and ceremonies.

The Mac Bernd Professional Development Center (PDC) is located at 1111 W. Arbrook Blvd. Arlington, Texas 76015. (North of Interstate 20 on Arbrook Blvd. between Cooper St. and Matlock Rd.) We are just north of the Parks Mall between 24 Hour Fitness and Academy Sports.

Our office hours during the school year are from 7:30am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. 
Our operational hours are 7:30am to 10:00pm, Monday through Saturday.
(These times may change during June and July.)

We are closed to all events on Sundays.
