APS Job Fair
APS hires hundreds of teachers for upcoming year.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – School starts in about two weeks and APS is quickly filling its vacant teaching positions.

The district said as of Tuesday, 189 of the more than 300 job openings are tentatively filled and all 77 education assistant positions have been filled.

APS held a job fair last week, for the first time in for years, to help fill the gaps left from a high number of retirements and resignations.

The district is also looking for nurses, counselors and substitute teachers.
