At the start of the global health pandemic, education sectors and other government agencies were taking the lead to mitigate the spread of the virus and ensure the delivery of quality education to students. One way to address this concern is by investigating the readiness and attitude of teachers to integrate a blended learning (BL) approach and modify the curriculum. The study utilized an explanatory-sequential design employing a standardized survey questionnaire for teachers with a Cronbach Alpha (0.961). A focus-group discussion was also employed for triangulation purposes. Respondents were determined through cluster-random sampling within Region VIII to 303 teachers with an ethics review board approval protocol number(2022-009). The results showed that teachers are ready (4.0) for BL regarding disposition, online integration, data practices, personalizing instruction, and online interaction. However, across the demographic profile towards attitudes of BL, faculty with PhDs (p=0.001), number of years in teaching (p=0.019), and females (p=0.022) have a more positive attitude towards BL approach than males. The relationship of BL to the demographic profile revealed that educational attainment (p=0.021) and number of years (p=0.006) in teaching are closely related to the attitudes towards BL. In addition, there is no significant relationship between the demographic profile and teachers' readiness. Moreover, these results can contribute to the post-COVID recovery in education and guide the making of a blended learning curriculum and the corresponding IRR to set standards to be followed. With its implementation, it is hoped that this will further ensure effectiveness and no wastage of resources.
