Abstract ―​

This study aimed to find out the perspectives of the students and teachers about the new normal education in Southern Palawan. A total of 152 Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics strand students and 21 Senior High School teachers of the same strand were the respondents of this study. Frequency distribution, mean, percentage, Pearson Product- Moment Correlation Coefficient were the statistical tools used. Most of the students were 18 years old, and females; while majority of the teachers were aging 23 to 30 years old, and were also females. Students and teachers perceived blended learning and distance education as learning processes involving several learning platforms both online and offline like radio-based or TV-based instruction, and modular learning; while they perceived home schooling as a process of acquiring education at home with the guidance of a parent or other family members. Students and teachers agreed that the new normal education has quality, efficacy and sustainability. Their demographic profiles did not influence their perspectives about the new normal education.
