This article aims at identifying the school staff's conceptions about integral education and fulltime schooling from a public school in Goiânia. It is a qualitative study based on ethnography in which the following instruments of generating data were used: participant observation, field notes, interviews, and the official documents that discuss integral education and fulltime schooling in Brazil and in Goiânia. The cultural domains analysis, suggested by Spradley (1980), revealed that the fulltime schooling model has not been well planned and established in our public schools, undermining the integral education effectiveness in these educational institutions.
