Class is in session

Good Monday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles.

It's 75 degrees as we get things moving today. It's supposed to be one of those summer days typical for Mississippi: hot & humid with a chance for thunderstorms. Julia Weiden will let us know what we can expect in her First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, students in one of the state's largest school districts are getting ready to head back to school. From Common Core-to-freshman academies, we'll take a look at some of the changes JPS students can anticipate in the coming year. 

Plus, the search for Jackson's next police chief has narrowed to two candidates. Find out who Mayor Tony Yarber has his eye on, coming up in the AM Report.

And, an accident involving an ATV has claimed another life.

Those stories and more are heading your way at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7, and have a great Monday!
