The state of Indiana gets a one-year extension on its waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind Law. It allows for more flexibility in terms of how the state spends federal money.

There was some concern the waiver would be denied when the U.S. Department of Education claimed the state failed to meet certain requirements mainly with how it monitored low performing schools and evaluated teachers and principals.

Indiana was one of 10 states to receive a waiver from the law in 2012.
