NYCDOE Updated the

Science Safety Manual

(Grades 6-12)

June 2022 Regents Information/Reference Tables 

 Dear SSA Members:

Please note the following from the February 2022 NYSED memo entitled: Procedures for Requesting and Storing the June 2022 Regents Examinations

Reference tables for Regents Examinations in the Physical Setting/Sciences: 

The Department does not provide printed copies of the reference tables. The reference tables are available on the OSA website. The online editions must be used during testing, and schools must print sufficient copies to supply one clean copy to each student for use during the examination.

Note that the Department will continue to provide schools with the braille and large-type editions of the reference tables in the shipment of secure materials for the examinations.

The full document can be found at the NYSED.gov website
Also, Maureen Reilly Gasior from Hillcrest High School was inquiring if school who ran AP Bio ran it for single period, double period, a single period + a 2/3 split with physical education.  If you would like to share how you program for AP Biology at your school, you may email 

Thank You,

Please be advised the New York City Department of Education Science Safety Manual for Grades 6–12 has been updated and is now available on WeTeach; this manual replaces the 2008 Science Safety Manual version for grades 6–12. Note that the 2008 Science Safety Manual is still applicable for grades K–5. 

The new NYCDOE Science Safety Manual Grades 6–12 is designed for secondary school administrators, science teachers, laboratory specialists, and other staff working with secondary science classes. It provides guidance around safe and ethical procedures for science teaching and learning—including information on City, State, and federal regulations for science laboratories, investigations, and experiential learning activities.

It also contains information about obtaining, using, storing, and disposing of chemicals and materials used for science and STEM activities, and provides a set of relevant links, forms, and other resources to support science safety.

For questions, email STEM@schools.nyc.gov with the subject line, “Science Safety Manual.”
