The Covid-19 pandemic created an adverse impact on the educational system. The students are among the most adversely affected during the said global health crisis. In this descriptive study, we determined the challenges encountered and the coping strategies of the students in Bicol, Philippines, and developed an intervention to address the challenges encountered by the students during educational disruption. Data were gathered using online survey questionnaires and informal interviews during the second semester of the academic year 2020-2021. Salient findings show that most issues experienced by the students pertain to the time-consuming and too many learning tasks. Regarding learning assessment and requirements, the issues were on the content proper of assessment tasks, such as length, difficulty, and concepts like being too theoretical, are moderately experienced by students, as well as the documentation process of the performances. Regarding teacher engagement, the students experienced minimal issues regarding the teacher's engagement. Students also reported stress, fatigue, and the pandemic itself and its consequences, like lack of physical socialization, as the reasons for their lack of motivation to learn. Coping strategies were reported by students to address the different challenges. A proposed intervention is proposed to support the students during the educational disruption.
