PORTLAND — The city’s first charter school has a new executive director.

Kelli Pryor, who was the founding board chairwoman of Baxter Academy, was named executive director last week. She succeeds Carl Stasio, who resigned in March to work more extensively on his accreditation work, according to a press release.

As founding chairwoman, Pryor signed the school’s charter in 2013. The press release said Prior will work on strategic planning, development, community outreach, and compliance. The school at 54 York St. will graduate its first senior class this June.
