Laboratory Program & Procedures
According to the New York State Education Department, students enrolled in a Regents Science course must satisfactorily complete a Laboratory Requirement in order to be eligible to sit for the Regents Examination in that Science. This policy requires that students complete hands-on laboratory activities accompanied by acceptable laboratory reports. Consequently, students must participate in and complete acceptable written reports for the laboratory activities assigned by their science teacher.
The laboratory requirement must also be met in order for a student to be eligible to take a Science Course in summer school. Therefore, if a student fails to complete the laboratory component of the science course in which they are enrolled, s/he will not be permitted to sit for the Regents Examination and s/he will not be eligible to repeat the course in summer school.
The deadline (as set by the New York State Education Department) for submitting the laboratory reports necessary for the student to meet the lab requirement is one week prior to the administration of any component of a Regents Examination in science. Since the Earth Science Lab Practical portion of the Regents Exam is generally administered on the first Monday in June, all laboratory reports for any Regents Science course must be submitted no later than the last school day before Memorial Day.
If a student is in danger of not meeting the laboratory requirement in science, the teacher will communicate with a parent or guardian as follows. In addition to attempting to reach a parent/guardian by phone, the teacher will:
