Schools have an important role in the development of these skills. Owing to the importance of the issue and the role of Document of Fundamental Transformations in Education in this institution’s policies, this study conducted a quantitative analysis of the contents of Document of Fundamental Transformations in terms of attention to the categories of social skills from the goal setting of teleological perspective. After sorting and counting covert and overt statements, and calculating descriptive statistics, to estimate the degree of importance of Indicators, Shannon entropy method was employed. For calculating the reliability and validity of research, re-encoding was used by other researchers in Chapter 4 of the document, and the agreement coefficient obtained 92.75 percent. Results showed that the highest amount of attention and the importance were about Relationship skills (41 percent), the responsibility (27 percent), and the coping skills (20 percent), respectively.
