Thrive's Briggs Community Partnership Program (BCPP) was established in 2010 to provide an alternative in-district setting for West Warwick District's special education high school students. The program is comprised of two high school classrooms (grades 9-12) located at the Maisie Quinn School.
The BCPP is a community-based satellite program for West Warwick High School students with severe behavioral and emotional needs. It offers the district and its students an alternative pathway to graduation. It addresses the unique needs of students struggling in a self-contained environment and do not meet the level of need for out-of-district placement. It is designed to maintain each participant’s academic and social success for the duration of a student's high school career. Once placed in a satellite, students typically remain in the program until they graduate.
The Briggs Satellite mirrors the home district's curriculum. Master’s level special education teachers provide instruction with great attention given to improve students’ underdeveloped skills. The BCCP has a maximum capacity of 16 full-time students with a maximum classroom size of eight students. The satellite also features a full-time vocational specialist to address the student's transitional requirements. The BCPP maintains a clinical focus with a full time master's level clinician overseeing daily group therapy, all behavioral plans, and crisis interventions.
