STAMFORD, Conn. — Matthew Laskowski has been named the interim principal at Rippowam Middle School in Stamford.

Laskowski's new position is effective this week.

He is replacing Jason Martin, who announced his plan to leave the district last month.

Laskowski is the assistant principal at Stamford High School, a position he has held since August 2015.

Before that, he worked in the Danbury Public Schools district for 10 years at both the high school and middle school levels.

Laskowski, a Stamford resident, was the dean of student support at Danbury High School from 2012 to 2015. He also served as director of Danbury Early College Opportunity. The DECO program is modeled after the P-TECH school in Brooklyn, N.Y., and provides students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an associate degree concurrently at no cost.

Before working at the high school, Laskowski was a physical education teacher at Rogers Park Middle School in Danbury.

Laskowski holds a sixth-year certificate in advanced educational leadership from the University of New England, a master of science in special education from Western Connecticut State University, and a bachelor of science in physical education from Springfield College.

Antonio Ramos, a former assistant principal at Stamford High and Westhill High School, will serve as acting assistant principal at Stamford High for the remainder of the school year.

Superintendent Stamford Public Schools Earl Kim made the announcement.
