Research suggests that home-school collaboration is successful when it involves all elements of the parent-teacher-student triangle. However, Slovenian schools do not practice three-way conferences, since students, who are a crucial part of the collaboration, are often excluded from the process. This paper presents the results of a study conducted in two classes of Year 4 (9 Years old students) at a Slovenian primary school (experimental and control group). The study focused on identifying the effect of involving students in parent-teacher collaboration through three-way conferences. The findings revealed that these conferences contributed to the improved level of student motivation to do schoolwork.


Keywords –three-way conferences, school, students.
