Takeover: Some Selma teachers may lose more than their jobs - Details on WSFA 12 News

The first full day of a state takeover of the Selma City School system by the Alabama Department of Education started today. The team met with Selma school leaders this morning and they could spend a few nights in Selma to get the system back on track.

Tonight at 5 reporter Bryan Henry will tell you why some educators may lose more than their jobs when all is said and done.

In Montgomery, grief counselors were on hand at Goodwyn Middle School after students and teachers learned of an 11-year-old classmate's death. Naycha Night died in a two-vehicle crash Sunday. We'll update the conditions of the other passengers involved in the crash, including a 12-year-old.

And there's talk of shrinking the U.S. military to its smallest size since World War II. There are several military installations in our area. We'll tell you more about the proposal and share how some of our representatives feel about the idea.

And how many people took advantage of the Severe Weather Sales Tax Holiday this weekend? We'll take a look.

For more news, weather and sports, join us tonight at 5 and 6 on WSFA 12 News.

See ya then,

Valorie Lawson
