During the COVID-19 pandemic, education changed dramatically, notably in school-community engagement. School administrators prepared for and implemented the novel adopt-a-school program, Brigada Eskwela, by adopting the Departmentâ€™s Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan. This program is feasible but not without difficulties. As a result, this phenomenological research examined Cluster IV secondary and integrated school administratorsâ€™ experiences in the Division of Davao City implementing the adopt-a-school program: Brigada Eskwela in the new normal. The researcher selected the participants via purposive sampling through remote physical and video conferencing of one-on-one in-depth interviews. The findings revealed that school administrators prepared for the transition of the adopt-a-school program: Brigada Eskwela, including overcoming challenges and developing coping mechanisms in the face of the new normal. Collaboration and partnership programs of stakeholders and private partners will address their resources and training needs to manage the school effectively for improved student learning outcomes. It is truly a community for studentsâ€™ new normal education.
