Wadsworth City School District Selects CheckPoint Software to Save Time, Correct EMIS Reporting Errors

CheckPoint is a proprietary EMIS reporting software platform developed by Vinson Consulting Group.

Columbus, OH — January 18, 2019 — Vinson Consulting Group is pleased to announce that the leadership team at Wadsworth City School District has chosen the company’s CheckPoint Platform to improve their EMIS reporting processes, eliminate errors, and save valuable time and resources.

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 leverages this data to calculate the amount of funding each district will receive from the State government. If a district submits an EMIS report that includes errors or omissions, it risks receiving less funding than it is owed.

“My staff can’t say enough about this tool,” says Wadsworth Superintendent Andrew Hill. “They love its flexibility and utility across the district, and they say tell me they can’t imagine doing EMIS reporting without it.”

Hill continues, “CheckPoint makes finding and correcting EMIS errors simple and easy, and it saves our districts hours upon hours of time.”

The CheckPoint Platform is the product of over two years of development work led by Vinson Principal Mike Nutter. Starting out as a teacher before becoming an assistant principal, principal, and finally, a Superintendent, Michael has been deeply involved in the educational space for more than 25 years.

His experience taught him just how challenging and frustrating EMIS reporting can be. As he puts it, “Superintendents and Treasurers should be able to sleep well at night knowing what record sets are verified and by whom, rather than taking on responsibility for validating the entire district’s data.”

“We completely understand that every district is different,” Mike continues. “That’s why we collaborate with your staff in order to better understand your current EMIS reporting protocols and processes and, in turn, help streamline and improve them.”
