BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - English classes for immigrants in Binghamton, N.Y., have resumed for the first time since a gunman’s deadly rampage nearly three weeks ago.

Binghamton schools Superintendent Peggy Wozniak says more than 30 counselors and translators and about 30 students returned to classes Monday.

The district sponsors the classes, which are being conducted at at a Presbyterian church instead of the American Civic Association.

That’s where 11 students, a teacher, a receptionist and gunman Jiverly Wong died April 3.

Wozniak says the school district will rent space in the church while the Civic Association remains closed.
