BERLIN (AP) - Students at a German high school are returning to class for the first time since a shooting rampage by a former student this month.

Classes are not being held in the building where Tim Kretschmer, 17, gunned down nine students and three teachers before killing three others and then himself on March 11.

Students attended classes in nearby buildings Monday morning as authorities decide what to do with the building where the shooting occurred.

Starting Wednesday, 12 teachers will be assigned to help students work through their trauma. School director Wolfgang Schiele said some of the teachers returned from maternity leave or retirement.

Students are also receiving counseling from psychologists.
