Lorain City Schools Selects CheckPoint Software to Correct Existing Data Reporting Errors, Recover Revenue

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

Columbus, OH — February 11, 2019 — Vinson Consulting Group is excited to announce that Lorain City Schools has chosen Vinson’s CheckPoint Platform to locate and correct errors in EMIS reporting, ensure data integrity, and recover potential lost revenue.

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.

“CheckPoint has proven to be an incredible asset because it has instilled total accountability in all of our buildings to manage their own data,” says Lorain Treasurer Joshua Hill. “It has also allowed us to plan more effectively as a district, which means no last-minute rushing to get all of our reporting done.”

Hill continues, “It’s given me incredible peace of mind to know that all of our data is being audited at the highest possible level.”

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

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.”
