Corpus Christi ISD announced new principals for three district schools Friday.

Werner "Bucky" Hartman will lead Kaffie Middle School, Christine Sierra was named new principal at Calk-Wilson Elementary School and Laura Perales will lead Los Encinos Elementary School.

All three currently serve as principals at other district schools.

The district announced in a release on Friday it will continue announcing new information about school leadership as the summer begins.
