st: gllamm ordered probit models

Hello!  I have run ordered probit models in the past using svy: oprobit.  Those have worked great for me.  But now, I am trying to run ordered probit models using gllamm so that I can nest persons within schools (scid), and I am stumped.  Even in a very basic model (below), I receive error messages.  Do I need to specify the number of random effects, which I have seen on help pages indicated as "eqs(var1 var2 var3)" in the code?  I would like for someone to help me understand what I'm doing wrong in my modeling, so I can get these analyses to run.  Thank you!

could not calculate numerical derivatives

(error occurred in ML computation)
(use trace option and check correctness of initial model)
