Curtis Rippee and his family moved to McKinney to be part of a dynamic community where families live, work, attend school and attend church all in the same city.

Before joining ACIS in 2012, he was the Founder and Principal of StratiFi Partners, LLC, a CFO and consulting services firm.

He has been a Junior Achievement volunteer and is a past participant in McKinney CAN (Community Action Network), a program involving parents and community leaders in a yearlong dialogue with the school district.

He began his professional career with PriceWaterhouseCoopers, has a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from the University of Missouri and is a licensed Certified Public Accountant.
Rippee and wife, Deeann, are active members of First Baptist Church of McKinney and have three girls: Emma Grace, Abigail and Ellie.

“McKinney ISD is well known for its excellence and innovation,” said Rippee. “My family came to McKinney specifically because of its heritage and reputation as a community and its outstanding school system. McKinney has been everything we could have hoped for and more.”

“I believe my background and experience as a financial professional and business owner, as well as my perspective as a parent, give me the tools needed to serve as a member of the MISD Board of Trustees.”
