I briefly looked at that module and decided we don't need it. If I manually add 
a menu item (disabled, so it doesn't make a long menu), everything works: that 
is, menus show up and breadcrumbs are displayed. Clearly this will be the 
easiest methof for the customer. However, I am still trying to figure out how to 
get hook_menu() to place the schools under the desired parent menu item, which 
has a path of node/206.

I use custom_breadcrumbs [1] for this. I configure what the breadcrumb
of this type of content should be using tokens. Maybe it's worth
taking a look.
