INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The State Board of Education has settled a pair of changes to the board's operations without the power struggles that have marked its previous meetings.

The board voted unanimously Wednesday to keep in place rules that were set to expire. The vote came a few months after a failed effort to shift power on the board. The board also formally accepted a new Pence aide as its general counsel.

The votes lacked the pitched drama of the board's previous meetings.

Democratic state schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz, Republican Gov. Mike Pence and their respective supporters have spent more than a year in a variety of disputes. The fighting that's been marked by a lawsuit and myriad of outbursts led U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan to say Indiana faces "very deep dysfunction."
