This study aimed to determine the perceptions of the Mathematics teachers and Grade 6 pupils on the modular distance learning modality and the academic performance of Grade 6 in Bagong Nayon I Elementary School SY. 2021-2022 which could serve as basis for developing an intervention program. The descriptive method of research with the survey questionnaire was used. The respondents consisted of 252 pupils and 30 teachers.

Likewise, there was no significant difference in the perceptions of the two groups of respondents. Moreso, the level of academic performance of Grade 6 pupils in Mathematics was satisfactory with the weighted mean of 83.50. Furthermore, there was no significant relationship between the perception of the Grade 6 pupils and the level of academic performance in Mathematics on the Modular Distance Learning Modality.An intervention program was proposed based on the results of the study.
