Completing the Senior Letter of Recommendation Survey Student – If the student hasn’t already done so, we ask all students to complete their survey. The counselors use this information to assist in completing their letter of recommendation. Parent – The parent also has there own version of the survey to complete. The parent survey can be completed only by using the parent account and can not be found on the student’s account. Completing this survey assists counselors to complete the student’s recommendation.
