The purpose of this study is to determine the dimensions of smart schools in the Fars education system and provide a suitable model. The research method is descriptive survey. The study population consisted of all school principals Fars Province in the academic 2014-2015 and number of them was 1364. The sample volume using Cochran method was 302 people, which was chosen by cluster. In order to achieve the objectives of the study, beginning with a review of literature and research in Iran and world history questionnaire has 4 dimensions (infrastructure, human resources, process of teaching-learning, management) and 12 elements (hardware, software, physical, administrators, teachers, students, parents, curriculum, teaching methods, content, support, evaluation) and consists of 83 items based on LIKERT scale was adjusted. The validity of based on (judicial authorities, supervisors and advisors) and reliability through Cronbach’s alpha was calculated 0.98.

After the distribution and questionnaires, data using statistical indicators and the percentage distribution, confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling at 95% with SPSS 21 software and LISREL 8.8 were analyzed. Findings showed that all aspects have been confirmed and significantly (P<0.05) are above average. In all cases, the load factor smart component of education indicators are approved. In dimensions of infrastructure, human resources, process of teaching-learning and management factor loadings are 0.88, 0.43, 0.85 and 0.83, respectively. Selected references valid and dimensions of these smart to have a good education with a view to confirming the standard model coefficients derived by fitting indicators to measure structural equation modeling.
