Ordering stops along a route

This should be simple, right? According to the documentation, it appears that when I load my stops into a Route Solution instance I simply select a field containing my route names (e.g., elementary schools and middle schools) and then specify a numeric sort field if I want to visit my destinations in a specific order.

I've tried repeatedly to specify a sort order for my various routes which have 3 - 4 destinations, but ArcMap refuses to recognize my ordering in the sort field and determines its own sequence. Any help would be much appreciated.
