Bishop Professional Development Center

3601 SW 31st Street
Topeka, Kansas 66614

(785) 295-3240

Bishop Professional Development Center opened in October of 2019. It was created after Bishop Elementary School closed. It was completely rebuilt to suit its new purpose and was funded through the TPS Bond Project. It is a state-of-the-art learning center for district staff and includes a broadcast studio, audio room, makerspace, distance-learning lab, tiered-presentation room, robotics room, teaming rooms, small meeting rooms, classrooms, outdoor classroom and large partitionable rooms. District staff and community members are able to reserve rooms for meetings and retreats. 

Bishop was named after Maude Bishop, a long-time educator in Topeka Public Schools. She was a history and social studies teacher at Topeka High and received the THS Distinguished Staff award for her work. All of the rooms were named after schools in the district that closed due to the historic Brown v Board of Education lawsuit. The mural in the cafe pays homage to the landmark desegregation ruling. 

To inquire about availability, complete the Room Reservation Form (found in the left-side navigation). Building maps are also available in the navigation, as is a narrative on each room along with a list of the technology available in each room (Rooms).
