This study aims at determining the change tendencies of primary and secondary education school directors. This research was conducted with 360 administrators working in state primary and secondary education schools in Canakkale in the 2011-2012 academic years. It employs the 41-item Scale of Change Tendencies (SCT), which was developed by Akbaba-Altun and Buyukozturk (2011). Consequently, the school administrators were found to be at moderate level in terms of change tendencies. In addition to that, it was also found that the administrators high agreed with belief in the utility of change, they agreed with entrepreneurship in change at moderate levels, and with resistance against change and with maintaining the status quo at low levels.
