The purpose of this study was to determine the views of school administrators regarding distance

education during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study employed a phenomenological research design, which

is one of the qualitative research methods. This research consisted of 15 school administrators who work at

five elementary, five secondary and five high schools in Istanbul province. The study group was chosen from

school administrators who served as school administrators in the distance education process during the

COVID-19 pandemic. The study group was determined with a purposive sampling method. The data were

collected with a semi-structured interview technique. The data were analyzed with descriptive analysis method.

Research results reveal that distance education during the COVID-19 pandemic caused many difficulties in

implementation of the curriculum. On the other hand, tablet distribution campaigns and establishment of EBA

Support Points in schools provided easy access to EBA and other digital platforms for students from

disadvantaged groups. As a result of this study results, it is recommended that some steps should be taken

towards the implementation of a hybrid education model. In order for the training activities to be carried out in

a healthy way, it is recommended that the practitioners receive expert opinion and share experiences in the

training strategies applied for the first time, such as distance education.
