After 6 years in service, Jones returned to Danville where he got involved in afterschool programs through city council.

He was appointed by City Council to the school board before the City moved towards an elected school board.

His name was drawn out of appointed school board members lottery to give up his post and seek election in the first school board vote by the public and retained his seat.
