Another reason is that the school board was at odds over how much to fund health insurance risk corridor, a reserve that acts as a buffer against skyrocketing claims.

Elaine Whitney, school board chairwoman, proposed a 5 percent risk corridor, and school board member Paul Block argued that the school board did not need its own reserve, but should tap into the town’s $22 million reserve if needed.
