Science Laboratory Requirement

Science Laboratory Requirement
There is a mandated lab requirement for all Regents Science Courses. Each
teacher will set guidelines in accordance with State Education Department
Regulations. They state:
"All students in a Regents Science course must complete a State Education
Department mandated Laboratory Requirement. The laboratory requirement
consists of a minimum of 1200 minutes of hands-on laboratory experiences with
satisfactorily completed laboratory reports prior to admission into a Regents
examination in Science.
Specific laboratory requirements are determined by the teacher and are based
on laboratory inquiry skills that are an integral part of each science. These
include, but are not limited to, lab report formats, due dates, what constitutes a
satisfactorily completed lab experience, time requirement above the SED
mandate, and safety procedures and regulations."
