    Default meeting

    Hi,
    In Italy parents can have a talk with their children's teacher once a week according to a timetable.

    How would you call this meeting?

    Could you say ,for example:
    The meeting of the maths teacher is on Monday from 9.00 to 10.00 ?

    Twice a year all the teachers meet parents in the afternoon. How can we call this meeting? general meeting?
    Thanks Rip

    The maths teacher is available for meetings on Monday from 9:00 to 10:00 (if it is a weekly scheduled meeting slot, use Mondays).

    Twice a year all the teachers meet parents in the afternoon. How can we call this meeting? general meeting?

    This is normally called a Parent's Evening.

    Thanks Rip
    I am not a teacher.

    We call the periodic meetings (usually after reporting periods) a "parent-teacher conference."

    We don't have the weekly availability that you describe.
