Additional 8 buildings were also completed by the Regional Office in the provinces of Isabela and Quirino funded by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation. According to Regional Director Melanio Briosos, the school buildings will augment the growing population of students in the region benefitting students in elementary, junior, and senior high.
