Principal's Bio


Welcome to Crawford County Elementary School, home of the Eagles.

My name is Paris Raines and this is my third year serving as the principal of Crawford County Elementary School.  I am very proud of my long career in education with all of my 24 years serving as a teacher, coach, Assistant Principal, and Principal in the same school system that I graduated from.

I graduated from Crawford County High School in 1986.  I received my B.A. in Business Administration in 1991 from Fort Valley State University.  I am especially proud of my ROTC participation.  I was commissioned as an Army Officer in 1990 and served 8 years in the Army National Guard/Reserves.  I received my Master’s degree in Science with a concentration in Middle Grades Education from Fort Valley State University in 1994.  I received an Educational Specialist Degree in Leadership from Troy State University in 2006.

I have been married for 21 years and have 1 child.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and attending all types of athletic events.
