Serve. Innovate. Empower.

Saginaw ISD's purpose is to serve, innovate, and empower the students, families, communities, and stakeholders served throughout Michigan. To serve is to perform duties or services for another person or organization. To innovate is to make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods, ideas, or products. To empower is to make an individual or community stronger and more confident.
