This study aimed to improve the quality of learning in Madrasah Ibtidaiyah (MIN/MIS) schools at Manggarai Barat, NTT following the pandemic and the return to face-to-face programs recently. The research was conducted by an Madrasah Ibtidaiyah  education supervisor in Manggarai Barat, NTT, to address low qualified learning process and critical learning loss among students. The research gathered data on factors contributing to the low quality of learning, such as lack of teacher training or insufficient instructional resources, and examined the effectiveness of supervision and monitoring practices. Based on the findings, targeted interventions were developed, such as professional development opportunities for teachers, remedial programs for struggling students, and support for headmasters to innovate in their approach to teaching and learning. All stakeholders were involved in the research process, including teachers, administrators, students, and parents, to ensure a shared understanding of the challenges facing the school and to develop strategies that reflected their needs and perspectives. The research concludes that action research can be a powerful tool to encourage collaboration, build capacity, and promote positive change in schools. The results of this research can inform future efforts to improve the quality of learning and address critical learning loss in elementary schools in Indonesia and beyond.
