The Grade 5 attendance rate is the calculated by aggregating together the actual days of attendance of all Grade 5 public school students in a given school year and dividing that number by the aggregate total possible days of attendance.

Habitual truancy is defined as being absent from school without an acceptable excuse for all or part of five or more school days.
