This paper explores the challenges and opportunities in Modular Distance Delivery. Data was collected from elementary schools of Bayugan City Division, Philippines. This research applied descriptive-quantitative-correlational method. The subject of this research are the Elementary teachers in Bayugan City Division Philippines. The study revealed that, support from the school in crafting modules for modular distance learning is very important to make an effective and efficient material for effective instructional delivery. It further explains that there is no significant difference among teachers’ critical challenges and opportunities in modular distance learning delivery. This means that the participants profile does not define their effectivity. No matter what the challenges in terms of modular distance learning delivery they do not back out they pass through it. The result of the study recommends to the DepEd School heads and administrators to support on crafting educational modules to create a well-crafted instructional material to address the needs of the learners especially in modular distance learning. Aside from that, teachers also ensure that the modules created suits to the needs of the learners.
