This research study was conducted on the Cluster Resource Centre Coordinators (CRCCs) in Balasore District of Odisha to know their perception about the concept of Quality with reference to implementation of the RTE Act, 2009. It was conducted on ‘50’ CRCCs covering all the ‘12’ Blocks where the CRCCs were selected through Stratified Random Sampling Procedure in which every Block was taken as a Strata. The Researchers found that although some of the quality issues on sound academic support system perceived properly by the CRCCs but the quality issues like induction training programme for the newly recruited teachers: SMC Members support in the organization of curricular activities in School; Library facilities have been extended to all children; Teachers encourage low achievers to attain the special classes organized by Schools; SMC Members actively participate in the preparation and implementation of School Development Plan(SDP)  need special attention in order to actualize the vision of RTE-SSA Scheme on sound academic system as the major quality intervention in Elementary Education.
