Indiana has been granted a one year waiver extension to the federal No Child Left Behind education law.
The state was told in April that its waiver was in jeopardy over its failure to follow through on promises made in its initial waiver plan.
The waiver plays a critical role in determining how much say the state has in how millions of federal Title I dollars are spent.
Indiana was one of 10 states to receive a waiver from the law in 2012.
The waiver was granted after the state addressed concerns over how it monitored low-performing schools and evaluated teachers and principals.
