Who uses UCAP?
UCAP is intended for charter leadership. It is used by the SCSB and staff, USBE staff, board members and directors of charters authorized by the SCSB, and some charter staff/business managers.

How do I get access into UCAP?
The LEA is responsible in managing who has access to UCAP for their own LEA or school(s). Any individual designated to manage users may do this. SCSB staff recommends limiting user management to only the board chair and director. UCAP is often used to find charter contact information so keeping the most up-to-date information is best.

If you need a UCAP user account and you are associated with an LEA, please contact your board chair or director.

Where does UCAP get its data?
Data comes from mainly 3 sources: CACTUS provides LEA/school information. UTREx provides data for enrollment counts, demographics, retention and transfer rates. UCAP data includes finances, school profiles, oversight and uploaded documents.
