Supplemental Nutrition Eligibility

The Supplemental Nutrition Eligibility (SNE) Component is used to report the student's eligibility for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program in the Michigan Student Data System (MSDS). Data reported in this component are used to identify economically disadvantaged students. These data are used for categorical funding allocations, such as E-rate and Section 31a At-risk, as well as in a multitude of state and federal reports. It must be submitted for each student who is determined to meet eligibility requirements for free or reduced-price meals.
