The pandemic effect in the world of education has many influences. One of the most important things is the adjustment in the learning model. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of blended learning as an alternative to online education in the new normal era. This study uses a quantitative approach to compare educational programs' effectiveness before implementing blended learning with the point of educational programs after implementing blended learning conducted at SMA N 1 Piyungan in the Special Region of Yogyakarta. There are three in this research. First, so far, the problems in learning before the Blandet learning model were held, students had many difficulties. In terms of teacher and student, readiness was still minimal, unorganized, and untrained, so it was only natural that learning results were considered ineffective. Second, the facilities and infrastructure owned by the school, teachers, and students are inadequate; not entirely students can have the facilities expected from the school, making it challenging to learn Blended learning. The sampling technique used was a questionnaire technique, in which the respondents involved in this study were teachers who were taken from the schools that were the research sites. The number of respondents involved in this study was 70 teachers who were determined using the Slovin formula. The data collection technique used in this study used a questionnaire technique. The data analysis used in this study was mathematical analysis, which compared the percentage between educational programs' effectiveness before implementing blended learning with the point of educational programs after implementing blended learning. The assessment criteria are high whenever they have a score of 80-100% s, while the requirements are moderate, the score is 70-78%. Based on the study results, the effectiveness of educational programs after using blended learning was 95.05%, much higher than the effectiveness of educational programs before using blended learning with a score of 73.24%, so it has a 17% more margin. Based on the data from this study, it can be concluded that, in using this blended learning method, learning is more effective and more successful in learning during the new normal period. Based on this study's results, the authors recommend the school apply the Blended Learning learning model because the use of this method is very effective, efficient, and more successful in the new normal era.
