    • Column B: Semester(1)

    • Column C: Change_Indicator (1)

    • Column M: #_of_days_eligible_for_P-EBT (3)

    • Column W: Zip5 (5)

    • Students enrolled at eligible schools with NSLP Campus Type Codes of 01 or 02 who have at least one day of COVID or Virtual Attendance are now included regardless of Economic Disadvantage Coding if they meet one or more of these criteria:
