An efficient occupational study period influences the internal and external productivity of labor force, and this process contributes to economic growth. In accordance with this understanding, the purpose of this study is to determine the opinions of teachers and principals' perceptions and expectations about the occupational study period, mostly experienced in their own schools, held in September and June annually. In the light of the findings we aim to contribute to making an advance in developing teachers themselves and to enrich the content of the period. Data collection questionnaire titled as Ideas on the Occupational Study Period in Primary Schools, developed by Tonbul (2006), was used and given to 425 teachers and 120 principals. As a result of the survey, it was concluded that it would be benificial to evaluate the opinions of teachers in constitution, preparation, reporting the subjects of seminars and more free and authentical activities of teachers.
