Welcome to East Grand Forks Public Schools, the "Home of the Green Wave"! My name is Mike Kolness and I have been fortunate to serve as the Superintendent of Schools of EGF ISD 595 since July 1, 2016. East Grand Forks Public Schools is home to over two-thousand PK-12 students and just under three-hundred dedicated employees. The District has a rich tradition in all areas and "GREEN WAVE PRIDE" is evident throughout the entire school system and community.

Thank you for taking the time to visit the school district website! Please feel free to contact me at or 218-793-2880 if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
