- The five- and six-year completion rates calculate the number of students who complete secondary school within five or six years from the first time they enrol in Grade 8 and are key performance measurements for student success.
- The ministry uses this information to identify areas where students are succeeding and where others may need more supports.
- Government’s goal is to ensure all students receive a Dogwood diploma. In some cases, students complete their Dogwood diploma outside the five- or six-year timeline.
