Good Afternoon Science Supervisors and Friends: 

I am happy to announce our first in-person meeting in two years has been scheduled for Thursday, November 3rd, 2022. Please see the attached flyer for additional information and registration link (SSA November Meeting - Registration Link).

As always, we welcome non-members and teacher leaders to represent you at our meetings.  We are encouraging our CSA members to renew their yearly dues of $25 to support and sustain our organization.

We will have a guest presenter to discuss engaging post pandemic learners in the science classroom as well as updates from the NYCDOE Science Team and some membership business. 

Lunch will be provided.

We encourage you to take the time from your busy days to engage and network with your colleagues throughout NYC.

Please forward this email to new science supervisors or science supervisors within your districts and boroughs. If you would like to be added or removed from this email list, please email me at

I look forward to seeing everyone on November 3rd.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank You,
Michael Hojnacki
Assistant Principal, Science

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 with the subject line, “Science Safety Manual.”
