TFC Policy for Eagle References

Upon receipt of the Eagle Application, the Council verifies that the information is complete and accurate. If everything is complete and correct, the council provides a certification signature, files a copy of the application and sends the original and project workbook to the district advancement committee to schedule the board of review. Three Fires Council policy is that reference letters are requested as part of the Eagle package submission. The Council has the responsibility to secure recommendations and has elected to do this via letters. The Council has elected to designate the Eagle Candidate the responsibility to secure the recommendations in a sealed letter format. The Council will accept the Eagle application without the reference letters, will request that reference letters be provided  and if reference letters are not received within two weeks will forward the package to the district.   Upon receipt of the package by the district advancement committee, they will contact the unit to schedule the board of review. If reference letters are not received than the Council delegates the responsibility to the Chair of the Eagle Board to contact the reference, collect the responses and present the findings at the Eagle Board of Review. Completed reference responses of any kind are the property of the council and are confidential, and only review-board members and those officials with a specific need may see them. The responses are not to be viewed by or returned to the Scout.
