    If you anticipate applying to a public or private school next year and are in need of transcripts and/or letters of recommendations from teachers, please adhere to the following:

    TRANSCRIPTS

    Each school that you apply to typically requires a transcript request.  Transcript requests must be submitted to the Revere Counseling Office. 

    Online Transcript Requests

    1. ONLY REQUEST TRANSCRIPTS ONLINE if the school that you are applying to will be requesting the records. Please do not request the records to be sent to your personal email address.   The school will request the records via email.
    2. All online transcript requests should be requested through the Counseling Office Records Clerk, Danielle Harris at harris@lausd.net
    3. Provide $5 (cash only) for EACH transcript request in an envelope with the student’s name. Submit to the Counseling Office at Revere.  You may drop off transcript request fee(s) through the Main Office mail slot or you may mail in all transcript request documents ATTENTION: PRMS Counseling Office. 

    Paper/Pen Transcript Requests

    1. Fill out and sign the transcript request form provided by each school.
    2. Provide $5 (cash only) for EACH transcript request.

          NOTE:  Transcripts will be mailed to the requested school(s) at the end of the FALL and SPRING semesters.

    LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION 

    Each private school that you apply to will typically require three letters of recommendation: two teacher recommendations and an Administrative recommendation (submitted by Grade level counselor). Most private school recommendations can be submitted “online” but if a paper recommendation is required, please see below:

    Online recommendations

    1. Send the staff member an email indicating that you are applying to a private school and you would appreciate if the staff member could fill out the online recommendation. Teachers receive many emails on a daily basis so be sure to let the staff member know from which schools they will be receiving an email with a link to submit their recommendation so they can be on the lookout for it.  NOTE: some online recommendation emails from private schools end up in a Teacher’s JUNK MAIL so please remind the teachers.
    2. Fill out the BRAG SHEET and provide it to each person writing you a recommendation. (optional)
    3. Give the staff member at least two weeks before the deadline to submit the recommendation.
    4. After you confirm your recommendation letters have been submitted, take a quick minute to send the teacher a thank you email.

    Paper/Pen recommendations

    1. Send the staff member an email indicating you are applying to a private school and you would appreciate if the staff member could fill out a recommendation. Let the teacher know that the application is not online.  You must coordinate with the teacher about how to get the recommendation form from you since not all teachers are going to school.
    2. Fill out the information of the recommendation form required by you.
    3. Fill out the BRAG SHEET and provide it to each person writing you a recommendation. (optional)
    4. Give the staff member at least two weeks before the deadline to submit the recommendation.
    5. Provide the teacher with a self-addressed stamped envelope to mail in each recommendation.
