(UNDATED) - Indiana will retain flexibility on how it can spend federal education money after it received another waiver from certain No Child Left Behind rules.

The U.S. Department of Education granted the waiver to Indiana after federal officials raised questions earlier this year about the state's compliance with some of the waiver's rules.

State Superintendent Glenda Ritz says there are no conditions attached to the waiver.

The waiver was in doubt when the USDOE raised questions about the effectiveness of Indiana's evaluation system for teachers and principals.

Ritz says the waiver being granted, "is strong validation for what we do here at the department.
