Our Collaborative Positive Storytelling Voice

I am pleased to announce that Saginaw ISD’s new website and mobile app are now available for you to explore! Since late 2020, we partnered with Apptegy and have been working to implement a new customer service experience that focuses on authenticity, real-time content sharing, and user-friendliness. This upgrade includes a robust communications tool, called Thrillshare, that allows content to be shared in real-time simultaneously across multiple platforms including our homepage and social media accounts. This transition sets the foundation for our future as we begin to enhance our positive storytelling campaign throughout Saginaw ISD, Saginaw County, and the Great Lakes Bay Region. In the spirit of collaboration, I am also pleased to announce the creation of the Saginaw County Instructional Leadership Council comprised of representatives from districts throughout the county. Together this team will reimagine instruction and classroom learning models as we look to the Fall 2021-2022 school year.  

I encourage you all to explore our new website at www.sisd.cc and download the free mobile app available on Google Play or the Apple App Store.  

Yours in Education,
Jeffrey Collier, Superintendent
