under section 33 of The Assessment Act 
or clause b of regulation 4 of Ontario 
Regulations 197/52, the assessment as 
set forth in sub-clause i together with 
an amount equivalent to that which, if 
levied upon at the rate of real-property 
taxation on the rate-payers of the high- 
or continuation-school district for school 
purposes, would result in taxes equal to 
the moneys so received by the board, 

but where the assessment under sub-clause i, 
to be used for a municipality in the calculation 
of the grant under these regulations, is more 
than 120 per cent of the assessment under 
sub-clause i used for that municipality in the 
preceding year, the assessment of that muni¬ 
cipality under sub-clause i means 120 per cent 
of the latter assessment; 

(■ c ) “assessment per capita” means the quotient 
obtained by dividing the number representing 
the assessment by the number representing 
the population, but where there is no assess¬ 
ment for school purposes, the assessment per 
capita means an assessment per capita of 
$1150; 

( d ) “population” means the total population of 
each municipality within or partly within the 
high- or continuation-school district, whether 
or not only part of the municipality is included 


14 


in the district, as shown by the assessment 
rolls on which taxes for the preceding year 
were levied, less the number of inmates of 
public institutions; and 

( e ) “population per municipality” means the 
quotient obtained by dividing the total popula¬ 
tion of municipalities in whole or in part in 
the high- or continuation-school district by 
the number of those municipalities, but where 
no population is available, the population per 
municipality means fifty times the average 
daily attendance. 

(3) Except where grants are payable under sub¬ 
regulation 2 of regulation 22, debenture charges and 
capital outlays from current funds shall form part of 
the approved cost only in the proportion that the 
average daily attendance of all pupils other than 
pupils from other high-school districts attending the 
schools under the jurisdiction of a board, bears to the 
total average daily attendance in those schools. 

AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE 

18. (1) Subject to subregulation 2, “average daily 
attendance” for the purposes of the grant to a board 
under subregulation 1 of regulation 24 means average 
daily attendance of pupils for the preceding year but 
does not include pupils from another high- or con¬ 
tinuation-school district. 

(2) For the purposes of subregulation 1 the average 
daily attendance of a high or continuation school shall 
be not less than the figure computed by subtracting 
the average daily attendance of pupils attending the 
school from other high- or continuation-school districts 
from 20, or in the case of a school or an island or in a 
territorial district, from 40. 

19. (1) Where the board operates one or more 
departments of agriculture, the average daily attend¬ 
ance, as provided in regulation 18, shall be increased 
for each department by the number set forth in Column

the preceding year set opposite thereto in Column 1 
as follows:

(3) Where the pupils of 2 or more schools operated 
by a board receive instruction in industrial arts or 
home economics in one school operated by that board, 
the average daily attendance of those schools shall be 
added together for the purpose of subregulation 2. 

(4) Where the board operates one or more home- 
instruction units, the average daily attendance, as 
provided in regulation 18, shall be increased for each 
of those units by 2. 

(5) Where a department, class-room or unit was 
in operation for only one term in the preceding year, 
the average daily attendance shall be increased by 
one-half of the number calculated under subregulations 
1 and 2 respectively. 

AMOUNT OF GRANTS 

20. The board of a continuation school shall be 
paid a grant of 

(a) 75 per cent of the approved cost where the 
school is in a territorial district or on an island,

school is situated elsewhere. 

21. Subject to regulations 25, 26, 27, 28 and 37,

ceding year to the extent that the payments on the

(2) The amount of the grant under subregulation 1 
shall be calculated at the rate applicable to 

(a) the board of the school section, separate school,

(2) In the first year following the annexation, the

regulations to the board or boards of the urban munici¬ 
pality in the year of annexation is exceeded by the grant 
per pupil paid in the same year in the annexed area, 
ascertained by dividing the grant paid in each case,

average daily attendance of resident pupils. 

(4) In the second, third, fourth and fifth years

pupil shall be paid on the excess of the average daily 
attendance of resident pupils of the board of the 
urban municipality subsequent to annexation over the 
average daily attendance of the resident pupils of the 
board of the urban municipality in the year preceding 
annexation. 

(5) In the sixth year following the annexation, the
