County departments of job and family services shall establish and administer developmental activities for minor heads of households and adults participating in Ohio works first. In establishing developmental activities, county departments are not limited by the restrictions that Title IV-A imposes on work activities. Developmental activities may be identical or similar to, or different from, work activities and alternative work activities.
In accordance with a federal waiver granted by the United States secretary of health and human services pursuant to a request made under former section 5101.09 of the Revised Code, a county department may establish and administer a developmental activity under which a minor head of household or adult attends a school, special education program, or adult high school continuation program that conforms to the minimum standards prescribed by the state board of education or instructional courses designed to prepare the minor head of household or adult to earn a high school equivalence diploma. Pursuant to the waiver, a minor head of household or adult assigned to this developmental activity is required to earn a high school diploma, adult education diploma, or high school equivalence diploma not later than two years after the date the minor head of household or adult is placed in the activity.
