Checkpoint EMIS Platform
CheckPoint is a proprietary EMIS reporting software platform developed by Vinson Consulting Group.
Columbus, OH – January 11, 2019 — Vinson Consulting Group is thrilled to announce that Monroe Local Schools has named Vinson’s CheckPoint Platform as their tool of choice to ensure EMIS compliance and optimize their reporting processes.
The Education Management Information System (EMIS) is a statewide data collection system for primary and secondary education in the state of Ohio. It is responsible for processing students’ demographic information, attendance, course information, financial data, and test results. Ohio’s Department of Education uses all of this data to calculate the amount of funding that each district receives from the State government. If any district submits an EMIS report with errors or omissions, it may get less funding than it deserves — or worse, Treasurers and Superintendents may face professional consequences.
“Before partnering with Vinson, I can’t even count how many hours we spent poring over spreadsheets and correcting data inaccuracies,” says Monroe Treasurer Holly Cahall. “CheckPoint has saved our staff many hours in researching data errors, and made our processes far more efficient. We can identify staff who need additional training, and it helps us rectify systematic problems, which in turn also streamlines our efforts.”
Cahall continues, “Our district’s Special Education administrator said with CheckPoint, we now have the time to spend on important and more meaningful issues that improve service to our students.
The Vinson team developed the CheckPoint Platform over the course of two years in an effort to bring greater accountability and efficiency to the EMIS reporting process at districts all across the state of Ohio.
Heading up that effort has been Mike Nutter, a former Superintendent at Mechanicsburg and Green Local Schools who witnessed his own EMIS staff’s frustrations with EMIS reporting and sought out to solve them once and for all.
According to Mike, “CheckPoint cuts out all the messy, anxiety-inducing guesswork from EMIS reporting. With this tool in hand, Superintendents, Treasurers, and EMIS staff can know exactly what the Ohio Department of Education will see when they look at their submission.”
