From what you have described, this students would not meet the criteria for retention. Her struggles are things that many of my former 2nd grade students struggled with. She may have attention issues, but she may just be less mature like you said.

At my former school we would have to have had documentation to support retention. The child would have had to been brought to the child study team along the way. We would have to list any interventions or accommodations used and the results. Do you administer standardized testing? Has she shown growth this year? If she is growing academically that would also nix retention unless she was significantly behind her peers. Encourage tutoring and send home a list of low pressure activities (see TpT or Pinterest, etc.) to keep her learning over the summer.
