Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) substitute teachers and educational assistants are getting raises starting in January.

APS is hoping higher salaries will help fill a shortage.

They’re raising the current $10 an hour for a sub to $13 an hour in the new year.

Educational assistant substitutes will see an increase of nearly $1.50 from about $9 an hour to $10.50.

The district wants to hire more than 600 new substitutes all together.
