Aim of the study is to determine competence of classroom teachers and branch teachers regarding school–parent relations according to the opinions of school principals and supervisors. This study is based on a survey model. The population of this study consists of school principals who work in public primary and middle schools in the central districts of Antalya province, Turkey, together with education supervisors working in Antalya province. The school principals were chosen by cluster sampling method and supervisors were chosen by random method. In order to solve the sub-problems of the study; arithmetic mean and standard deviation were calculated and Mann Whitney U and Kruskall Walls tests were applied. In accordance with the findings of the study; the participants think that classroom teachers are more qualified and capable than branch teachers. It is recommended that in-service training programmes be organized in order to improve teachers' qualifications in school-family communication and cooperation, and that common public education programmes be organized in relation to the effects of family and society on education as a means to provide awareness for the target group.
