Northmor Local School District Selects CheckPoint Software to Verify EMIS Data, Secure Necessary Funding

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

Columbus, OH — December 21, 2018 — Vinson Consulting Group is excited to announce that Northmor Local School District has selected Vinson’s CheckPoint Platform to improve, streamline, and bring greater accountability to its EMIS 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.

“I love using the CheckPoint Platform,” says Northmor Superintendent Chad Redmon. “Since we started working with Vinson, we’ve been able to easily and efficiently audit our data. As a result, I feel much more confident about reporting and verifying our data.”

Treasurer Tammi Cowell adds, “CheckPoint has been an invaluable tool for our school district. It consistently helps us recover revenue, and it gives me the peace of mind that my EMIS data is verified and accurate, ensuring that we receive the correct funding.”

The CheckPoint Platform is the product of over two years of development work led by Mike Nutter, a former Superintendent who started Vinson to solve his own frustrations with the inefficiencies and lack of accountability in his districts’ EMIS reporting processes.

According to Mike, “88% of all spreadsheets include errors. Given that alarming rate, no district should rely on a spreadsheet to calculate funding. Our team built CheckPoint to both improve the accuracy of reporting and make the lives of EMIS coordinators, Treasurers, and Superintendents easier.”
