New Shawnee Mission superintendent’s contract includes same car allowance, tax-sheltered annuity as Hinson’s. Incoming Shawnee Mission Superintendent Michael Fulton’s compensation package will be roughly the same as what Jim Hinson received his final year in the district. KCUR’s Sam Zeff reports that in addition to the $250,000 base salary announced when the board hired him earlier this month, Fulton will receive a $1,000 a month car allowance and a $24,000 per year tax-sheltered annuity. Those were perks that were part of Hinson’s contract when he retired from the district. Hinson was making $254,280 in base salary his final year with the district.
