Meals Plus Year End
09 May 2022

Meals Plus Year End

Region 1 will once again perform the year end process for you. This includes:

  • Preparing your data for the 2022-23 school year
  • Updating the Income Guidelines for your Free and Reduced Meal Applications in Student Eligibility
  • Updating Reimbursement Rates
  • Advancing students and inactivating those that have left

We are planning to start rolling districts on July 1st at the end of the day. We do request that you refund any remaining balances or transfer funds of your seniors before then. Also, we plan on removing all graduated seniors; if you want them retained as inactive, have a summer meal program that is used with Meals Plus, or if you have any other special requests, you must let us know before June 30th. Please also let us know if you want your negative meal accounts zeroed out.

All imports of student information from your SIS will be stopped on April 30th. If for any reason you need help with adding a student into Meals Plus, please contact Region1.

NOTE: Region 1 will still roll your information into the New Year unless told otherwise. When moving to the new meals system we would need to know if you would like last year’s students, or only new 2022-23 students. In the new system, new students will only show up AFTER Synergy or your SIS has been flipped into the New Year.


NOTE: Use the Serving Mode to refund money when money is actually leaving the district. Use the Balance Transfer under Utilities to transfer funds to another account if the money is staying within the district.

Knowing that MDE is now using end of year negative balance information for possible future district funding purposes, we will be archiving this unpaid lunch balance information at the end of the school year as a standard procedure in our hosting service.
