Coming up tonight on News Leader 9 @11!

Good evening! I'm Courtney Smith in the WTVM Newsroom.  Here's a look at some of the stories we're working on for News Leader 9 at 11.

Changes are on the way for students, teachers, and staff in Muscogee County. News Leader 9's Curtis McCloud was at the school board's meeting tonight when board members voted to approve a traditional calendar that has no furlough days and no year-round school in Muscogee County. He'll have more on that story coming up in a bit.

The controversial issue of gun control has become a top priority for lawmakers around the country, and it's no different in Alabama. Newly proposed state legislation has some law enforcement concerned about its potential impact to public safety. Annie Hubbell will explain why authorities are opposed to this bill.

Join us for these stories, plus Chief Meteorologist Derek Kinkade has your wake-up weather and Sports Leader 9's Dave Platta has your sports highlights, all coming up on News Leader 9 at 11!
