WESTFORD -- Nashoba Valley Technical High School has received $1,442 back on its workers' compensation and property casualty insurance costs.

The school district earned the credits -- which will be applied toward premiums for the next fiscal year -- through proactive and voluntary participation in loss-prevention and risk-management activities that are part of incentive programs offered by the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association, the district's insurance provider.

MIIA offers no-cost training and educational courses as a benefit to help its members reduce their risks and insurance premiums.

Nashoba Tech implemented loss-control measures and administrative procedures that reduce the risk of accidents and property damage. In addition, employees participated in training programs that promote effective management and operations.

"As with any municipality, it's our responsibility to look for ways to help the taxpayer and save the taxpayer money," Nashoba Tech Superintendent Dr. Judith L. Klimkiewicz said.
