How do teachers send the rec letters

When teachers write the recommendation letters, do they go through the common app or are they supposed to send it directly to the school? I'm currently working on my common app and I don't know if I should give them my common app info for them to send it there. It's just confusing to me

Teachers usually send them electronically using whatever system your high school uses. My high school uses Naviance and for that, I had to request the letters of rec (LOR) through Naviance and absolutely not touch the LOR section in the Common App or else it would screw everything up in Naviance. Ask your counselor what your school uses because you might have a similar situation or you might have to use the LOR section in the Common App, but it'll differ between high schools.
