Ramon F. LaGrandeur, superintendent and president of the Santa Clarita Community College District, said Wednesday he has submitted his resignation to the district's trustees and plans to leave his post in June. LaGrandeur, 61, characterized his departure as an amicable parting that occurred after he and his wife discussed their future plans. "There are some things we would like to do while we're still young enough to enjoy them," he said. "It's time to hang up the mortar board."

Signs of growth are everywhere at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita. Piles of earth mark construction sites. Students bump elbows on walkways.

"It's hard to get classes . . . and the parking lot is like the mall during the holidays," said student Christine Halty, 18. College of the Canyons leads state community colleges in growth. Its enrollment has been exploding for a decade.

The Santa Clarita Community College District Board of Trustees has approved a tentative budget that anticipates no growth in 1992-93. The $15.1-million budget, adopted Wednesday night, is about $900,000 more than last year's spending plan and allows only for inflation, said Linda Cubbage, board president. "We did just the basics," she said. Cubbage said it is still unclear exactly how much the district will receive under the state budget approved Aug. 31.

The Santa Clarita Valley Community College District board Wednesday awarded two bids to lease surplus college land for private development, a move expected to generate more than $75 million over the next 60 years. The lease agreements will allow two developers to turn 14 acres on College of the Canyons property at Valencia Boulevard and Rockwell Canyon Road into a hotel and office site.
